On November 11, the planet Mercury will pass in front of the Sun as viewed from Earth. This rare event is only visible when magnified with a telescope that has been properly shielded from the Sun’s bright light. Stop by the museum’s Sun Plaza on November 11 from 10-Noon to view the event through our powerful telescope. Astronomy experts will be on hand to answer your space questions!
Please note, if it is cloudy, this event will be cancelled.
